all lit up! There is no photos showing me putting the dash ii and getting the lights working as I lost the plot a few times. The dash wiring got broken and a micro switch came loose after being built. A local electrical engineering firm cured it for a free MOT!!!

A few parts required a bit of fettling to be fitted. The rear seats were supposed to snap together, but required gluing, and as previously mentioned the dash micro switches were loose (i broke the wire!)

That's turning into a sweet (not so) little model.

Thanks Paul, it is generally a good model with slight build quality issues. Nothing serious tho.
If they did release it in the uk would they put the steering on the correct side?( I'm not changing this over,lol)
It'll look good next to the db5 and I have a ducati 998 in 1/8th too, so I'm planning to get a few more 1/8 models, but other than plastic kits there isn't many on the Market.
I have a few more photos to resize yet, but I haven't had the chance, been busy.

door on. It was a pig to get the screws on tight enough to support the door. Proper snap on screwdriver helped so i could get the torq!
